Artists' Gouache Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

 Hello friends!


Welcome to Altenew Artists' Gouache Release Blog Hop. I am super excited to share a coloring project with Altenew If you arrive from the blog of Jessica Frost-Ballas , you are in the right place!
All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog 
 

 If you are coloring-challenged and are not always happy with water-coloring result, I highly recommend you to look into this coloring medium-The Altenew Artist's Gouache Set  


Feature products: Altenew Artists' Gouache Set, Paint-a-Flower Iceland Poppies Outline Stamp Set

Altenew-Artists' Gouache Set-Paint-a-Flower Iceland Poppies Outline Stamp Set -001
 
I will highlight the 3 best qualities of this Gouache set from a card-maker's point of view
 
1. Beautiful coverage: The way these paint blend will amaze you. Unlike watercolors, these paint will not mix and bleed and change its property. The color you use last will be the last color you see on your image. So, that means, you can easily cover the "mistakes".

2. Mix and blend: these paint do mix and blend quite nicely.  If you look at the poppies, you can see how the pink, coral and yellow retain its color value.

3. coloring property: due to the thickness of the paint, you will not have any trouble coloring the images. From large size (yellow/orange poppy) to small area(stems), you can apply the paint with ease.
